Summary

Palenque Area offers probably the most impressive rock formations around Viñales. Huge caves with massive tufas, tall walls and short approaches make this a must go area for all visitors.

Description

All sectors are located right and left of the road that heads out north of Viñales in direction of Puerto Esperanza and can’t be missed. There is a bar in the cave next to the parking.

Approach

Drive out north of Viñales for about 4km. The road will climb a bit (the small pass is called Abra de Ancón) and soon thereafter you will see the giant Mr. Mogote on your right and shortly thereafter the impressive Cuba Libre Wall on your left. Now the road starts decending and after a few hundred meters you reach the parking of El Palenque on your left.

Ethic inherited from Cuba

Climbing gear is extremely hard to impossible to get in Cuba. Please bring gear you can spare, bolts, ropes, anything of good quality and leave it with the Cuban climbing community.
